We were aware the resort was open a few weeks and got a good deal. The service was over the top since the place was practically empty. The food was good in all restaurants and I really looked forward to the great breakfast they served. No spa available but the one they referred us to was good. The gym was open but no weights were available Fernando was a great activities host. Lorenzo was also fun. They both got into the pool and played water polo with us. Activities at night were non-existent because no people were around. In fact they were telling us a show will be put on one night and we rushed to eat and get there but no show. By next year this resort will be amazing. It had a lot of potential. It's a beautiful resort and you can't beat the views. The staff is amazing and very attentive
Beautiful views. Very quiet since the resort is very new. Food in Mole, royal service lounge, palapa and Gabi was very good. Friendly attentive staff especially Carlos at the beach bar and Jesus at Gabi. Fernando the activities co ordinator was good too. Not quite perfect yet but heading there. Will visit again. Especially to view whales from balcony.An outdoor hot tub and some nightly activities can help.
We arrived at the Paradisus Los Cabos after they had been open for a week and we stayed a week in a Royal Service ocean view swim-up room. Going into this we were aware they were just opening but the deal we found could not be beat by other comparable all-inclusive resorts in Cabo... Since we had a great experience at ME Cancun (also by Melia) we figured we would take the risk and overall we are delighted we did. The staff helped make this trip unforgettable.Pros: All of the staff, especially our personal concierges Omar and Octavio, were very friendly and accommodating. Rodrigo and the Royal Service staff more than made up for the issues we had with reservations and the spa/construction (see cons below).The beach is great and it even has an area to swim (not common in Cabo). We did dinner on the beach and it was absolutely incredible. Being located away from the city is great for star watching. We saw 3 shooting stars while having dinner on the beach.The food was very very good, especially considering they had only been open a couple weeks. The breakfast at La Palapa was incredible. The buffet was also good but make sure you go early so everything is fresh. Hibachi was fun and very tasty. We had a romantic dinner on the beach where they served filet mignon and lobster. All 4 courses of that meal were amazing. The drinks were great. We especially enjoyed the "special" drinks that the waiters would suggest. We had a lot of pina coladas with a touch of Kahlua (Omar's suggestion) and the Paradise was very good also!Cons: We had some issues pre-paying online through Melia.com due to payment system errors and we had to jump through several hoops with the front desk to pay the price we were quoted online (they did end up honoring the online price). We contacted Melia via telephone prior to reserving the room to verify that construction would be completed and we were told specifically "they have been closed 2 years, it is my understanding that everything will be complete" including the spa which I specifically asked about. When we arrived there was still a whole building under construction and the spa was not open. Instead they were sending guests to a spa next door (Casa del Mar) which was great. The location of the resort is not very convenient for going to downtown Cabo San Lucas and the cab prices were outrageous ($30 one way to downtown Cabo San Lucas). You can take the bus for cheap but be prepared for an experience you will not forget (you will probably be the only tourists on the bus). When eating outside there were definitely flies around. The bread should be covered with a napkin or something at least. There were definitely times we could tell we were working with inexperienced staff but honestly it added a little character to the trip and with time this will definitely be one of the top resorts in Cabo.
This was a very last minute trip for our family. We are in business and as such cannot take too many planned vacations -nevertheless we try and take at the very minimum one family trip together. So Cabo sounded good and since we had stayed at the Melia Paradisus in The Dominican Republic last September for our 25th Wedding anniversary, we decided to go to the Paradisus Los Cabos since we had just celebrated my son's birthday! So when we arrived it was Christmas afternoon and we were informed that the Hotel had opened a couple of days earlier and so they were still finishing a few things up. At first my 15 yr old daughter and I were disappointed that the Spa was not ready for the Arora girls....the rest of the hotel and especially the staff more than made up for it:) If I were to rate them purely on readiness and phones in rooms etc...they would not rate well.....however that would be totally unfair on our part. Starting with the folks at reception to the guest services desk to the folks in housekeeping and the restaurants, bars and the poolside......they make sure you feel special and pampered!! Every single person working there was excellent Now for the names : Christine-Guest Services; David-Guest Services; Fernando- Guest activities (super fun every night at the Gabi Bar with the entertainment) ; Restaurants - Mole- Selson ( sorry about the spelling)- the best in the world!!!-Food at Ibana was grea, however, - service a bit allover the place -understandable due to cuisine. The Market Grill and the Market were both great- loved the Black Tagliatelle with Scallops and Garlic-yummy!! The stars of our trip- the amazing folks over at the Royal Service Lounge: Rodrigo, Mario, Martin, Gabriel, Alain...wonderful, they pamper you at the Royal Service Lounge. Their restaurant Palapa - which opened on our last night there- super staff and super food. If I have forgotten anyone or have the names wrong- y'all know who you are!! I promised them we would be back in 6 months to a year to see it operational in full swing!!! RECOMMEND THIS RESORT 100% . Much Love from Austin, TX
I have been to numerous all-inclusive resorts throughout Mexico, and this was the worst experience thus far. Long story short, the resort was simply unprepared to open. They were probably trying to capture the holiday rush.We arrived when they re-opened on December 23rd. For not having any previous guests, our room wasn't ready for another hour. No worries, we went to Market Grill. The grilled octopus was good and they took awhile getting my child's cheese pizza to him after asking to bring it first since he was hungry. My son got his cheese pizza after my wife and I got our appetizers and main dishes. The flank steak was ok but super rare for a "medium rare" steak. Wifi password? "We don't know it." We eventually got the password from the front desk. Being outdoors, there were definitely a lot of flies. When asked to cover my wife's lunch while she went to the restroom, they offered me a tablecloth and not an actual cover. Off to our room. Or so we thought. Due to a "computer error," we came to a double bed room. Back to the front desk we go. 30 minutes passes by and finally one of the managers walks us to our room to make sure we got the king bed. At least the room was clean. The AC was a little warm. Oh well, it probably needs some time to spool up. The tv wasn't working, so we tried calling the front desk. The phone wasn't labeled so by trial and error, we hit "0" and got the front desk. Within 20 minutes, our tv was fixed. I really shouldn't complain about the lack of labels since my other family members who arrived the next day didn't have any phones in their three rooms during their entire stay. When we called the front desk to ask them to install phones in their rooms and stated that it's difficult to communicate with my family, they simply stated, "You can text each other over the Wi-Fi." Wow, that's great customer service :(The pool was nice and clean and the cabana staff were very accomodating. Most other all-inclusive resorts usually let guests borrow a pool/beach bag. There was none in our room. We noticed that some other guests had pool bags and called the front desk later to see if we could borrow one. We were told "No, the bags are only for Royal Service guests." Ok. I asked one of the cleaning ladies if we could borrow a bag, and she was nice enough to bring one to our room later that afternoon. My family members did get bags in their rooms when they arrived the following day. Go figure. The pool staff were quick to bring drinks. We later ate at Mole that night. Pretty tasty including their own al pastor. Went back to the room and it was still really warm. Everyone was sleepy so I opted not to call the front desk hoping the AC would cool more. Well, I was wrong. After literally sweating through the night, I called the front desk first thing in the morning. At least the staff were quick about fixing the AC. Someone was in our room in 15 minutes. I did put the AC on the lowest setting, 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The person measuring the temperature noted that the AC was blowing at 26 degrees Celsius, which translates to 78.8 degrees Fahrenheit. They got it cooler to 23 degrees Celsius, which was 73.4 degrees fahrenheit. Much better now. But just sad that the AC wasn't initially working for a "newly re-modeled resort."Naos was a great buffet spot for breakfast. I believe Mauricio was the manager there. Super friendly guy and he made sure we got bottled waters before we headed out to the pool. The breakfast was a good combination of Mexican and American cuisine.Gabi was great for lunch. Their fish of the day was excellent. Coconut mojito is awesome. Service takes awhile. Chips and salsa? "We don't have salsa." Fine. Bring the chips and guacamole. 30 minutes later we got an individual sized bowl of chips and guacamole. And still a lot of flies since it was open air. I feel we spent half the time karate chopping and shoo-ing the flies away. Bana for dinner. Pretty good place till I got the Miso glazed fish. Inside was RAW. And this wasn't supposed to be a seared nor sashimi dish. I spit it out and we left without tipping. Although tips are included in the overall price, we tipped $10-$20 at the restaurants and $5-$7 poolside. Market Grill again for dinner. An hour for the main entrees to be brought. Their medium well steak was so rare that my mother and aunt couldn't even eat it. Oh well, that's what room service is for. Oh wait, they don't have phones in their rooms to call...Overall, such a disappointment.
